Toews went out Feb 20 to the end of season-22 games-not 17.
The first 17 games- if you're fixated on some lucky number or something- Stalberg had 7 points. (.42 ppg) The total 22 games without Toews-Stalberg had 11 points-(.50ppg)
Season total 43 points in 79 games (.54 ppg)
Maybe you meant 3 goals in the first 17 games? Combined with 4 assists, kinda like his season ratio and pace, eh?
So where is this great falloff?
He's just hating. Stalberg could put up 60 next year and people still won't like him for various reasons.
Usually because they can not admit they're were wrong. These same people said he did not belong in the NHL last year. Now, he's just good because of his line mates. Many of Stal's goals are him splitting through the D before anyone else is the offensive zone. It has little to do with his line mates. It's not like Kane and Toews were setting him up for empty cages every game.
